Teachers of our students who were tutored 1-on-1 reported large improvements in their reading performance.
"Thank you so much for helping my son. I have seen a huge improvement in his homework completion and attitude on school. Thank you!!"
"My students love Miss Laurie! I get asked every day if she's coming, and they look forward to it. So valuable to give the neediest students 1:1."
Most of our teachers also reported that students who worked with our tutors had:
- Improved concentration
- Improved participation
- Improved attendance
- Reduced disruptive behavior
- Making a difference in children's lives
- Giving back to their community
- Staying physically and mentally fit by tutoring
"Every week, our wonderful classroom volunteer, Anne, came in to read with small groups. The students loved her, especially the little girls, who were so happy to get some positive attention in a class over-run with noisy boys. Countless times as I looked across the room, I'd see Anne leaning in patiently to listen as they read, a kind supportive look on her face encouraging the students along. Their smiles and enthusiasm in discussing the stories with her were a wonderful reward for all of us. We got to delve into chapter books by great authors and set the traditional classroom reading anthology aside. It was fantastic!"
"Some of my students are reading an Anne Frank biography book. Jennie worked with that group over a period of several weeks sharing personal stories of her grandparents. She really helped the students understand the circumstances well."
"My children are so much happier and calmer in class now that they are able to read. Several students have now moved on to 2nd & even 3rd grade reading levels and can work independently."
